Stop Press - MemoryMoog Plus
Moog Music, Inc. have just announced the Memorymoog Plus, a new model Memorymoog six-voice polyphonic programmable synthesiser with MIDI interface and a powerful polyphonic/monophonic sequencer system built in, now available at authorised Moog dealers at a surprisingly affordable price. Also available as a retrofit kit, MIDI/Sequencer capability can be installed in all Memorymoog models.
The polyphonic sequencer provides 6 individual sequence memories; independent tempo, time signature, program changes (different sounds for each chord/note in the sequence), and number of voices used may be programmed for each sequence location. The performer can play the keyboard live in conjunction with the sequencer, and transposition of the sequence from the keyboard is possible. Memory overhead is approximately 4200 data-compacted "events" in real time mode and 5250 events in a "step" mode which allows data-entry of sequences, rather than real time performances.
The monophonic sequencer drives any external synthesiser with standard 1 volt/octave pitch control. The system can play back any given poly sequence along with any given mono sequences simultaneously.
Like a drum machine, the Memorymoog Plus sequencer can merge individual sequences, repeat them, and put them into a desired order to create a song. This "merge" can call up a program chain that the performer prearranges. On playback, the chain will advance as instructed to provide program (tone color) changes for the sequences, as well as pitch/timing changes.
The system provides clock input/output for compatibility with a variety of rhythm/drum machines (3 user-selectable clock speeds).
In addition to the MIDI/sequencer capabilities, the Memorymoog Plus has enhanced pitch stabilising/editing circuitry and software. Also available will be 100 new factory programs.
